Weekend closures for some Napa parks & recreation areas

The City of Napa's first priority is the safety of our citizens. Due the storms over the weekend, the Parks and Recreation Department is continuing to monitor parks and recreational area. Here is an update:

  • Main Street Boat Dock: The dock downtown will be reopened today.
  • Trancas Crossing Park: The park will remain closed to the public today as water still covers the bridge. 
  • Kennedy Park: The lower road next to the train tracks that serves the duck pond and Napa Valley College is flooded and remains closed, and barricades have been installed.

City officials will continue to monitor all parks and recreational areas and this site will be kept updated as more information becomes available.

Alston Park – Gravel Parking Lot Paving to Begin Monday, February 29

The City of Napa Public Works operations crews will be paving the southern gravel parking lot at Alston Park beginning next Monday, February 29, 2016.

They will grade the lot and improve the issues with drainage at the entrance from Dry Creek Road. This project will take approximately one week to complete depending on the weather. The crews will only pave one half of the lot at a time to allow access for parking at all times. They will then stripe the lot once the paving is completed. 

An electric sign board has been placed at the park this week to inform the public of the upcoming work.

Needed hydrant flushing underway

Tuesday December 15, 2015

The City of Napa Water Division has begun the annual Unidirectional Hydrant Flushing Program which will continue through March 2016. Flushing will take place in parts of north Napa, Browns Valley, Alta Heights, the Soscol Gateway, Napa Valley Corporate Park and Silverado Country Club service areas. 

Despite the ongoing drought conditions, the flushing program is necessary. If we do not routinely flush our City water mains, water quality will degrade. When pipes are not flushed, sediment can build up, react with chlorine, and increase the potential formation of disinfection byproducts, as well as require an increased amount of chlorine to ensure that the water remains potable. It is estimated that the flushing program accounts for about one-tenth of one percent (0.1%) of the City’s annual water use.
